Summary
"Remembering and the Sound of Words is a major new study of four of modern literature's most important writers - and the first serious attempt to account for complex sound effects in prose."--BOOK JACKET. "Adam Piette establishes fascinating new links between such sound effects and the representation of memory in literary texts. He sets out a workable taxonomy of sound-repetitions in prose and formulates, through a theory of alerting-devices, the ways in which the reader's attention is drawn to the acoustic surface of the text. Through close analysis of Mallarme's prose-poetry, Proust's musical syntax, Joyce's memory-rhymes (from Portrait of the Artist through Ulysses to Finnegans Wake), and Beckett's prose and drama, Piette demonstrates that sound effects act as intricate reminders of memory-traces in the text. Despite wide divergence in these four writers' representations of memory, the book shows that the use of this memory-rhyme technique is common to them all, and is employed in particular to express the textual migration of past key-words, self-centred comic tyranny, and the fitful unification of body and memory within the narrative voice. Mimesis is redefined in terms of textual rhymes - facsimiles of the complex resemblances, fusions, and reenactments of the mind's verbal memory."--BOOK JACKET
